After just one season at UB Coach Danials is leaving the program for family reasons
UB running backs coach Mike Daniels is leaving the program for family reasons, the school just announced. -- Rodney Mckissic, Buffalo News
Daniels came to Buffalo from Cincinnati where served as an assistant coach on the offensive staff and has an extensive football background both on and off the field. Daniels was a four-year letterwinner (2003-07) at Cincinnati as a wide receiver, running back and return man. He served as the team captain in 2007 and earned the Jim Kelly Spirit Award that same year. He was a multiple-year honoree on the Bearcats Academic Honor Roll en route to earning his bachelor's degree in criminal justice in 2007.
Whoever assumes this mantle will inherit a running game which fell woefully short last season. The Bulls' rushing offense finished tied with Akron for 101st in the country at just 113.4 yards a game and produced more touchdown runs by quarterbacks than by its halfbacks.
